Licence vs Subscription

The BBC is mooting subscription instead of licence. Is there a difference?

Well, the solar panels are making money again, as you can see from the latest chart of generation versus consumption, and we've turned the corner.

  1. The difference would be all us overseas viewers who currently watch BBC courtesy of our satellites would probably be unable to view it.. which would probably be what the BBC want, as living overseas we don't contribute to the licence.

  2. Could we not simply pay for the BBC by linking them to the solar panel thingy's that people cover their roofs with. Yours might well be the exception but the ones around here are universally ugly and the perpetrators of them should put something back into society - free television.

  3. Mine look positively beautiful, especially when running at full tilt in bright sunshine!
